    I've been logging on to my school's website remotely from terminal and have been successfully using the following command to do so:

    ssh myusername@myschoolserver.edu

    However, does anyone know if this is the most secure ssh method to log in remotely (without using any ssh options)?

    Thanks.

    forgot to mention

    ...forgot to mention that the server does ask for my password after the above command.

    thanks again

    Yes, it is secure enough. If your server supports public-key auth, that should be better.
    Also, in Terminal menu there is 'Secure Keyboard Entry' option which you can use when entering password.
